Getting Her Wedding Dress Preserved 50 Years After the Wedding

A Wedding Dress Story by June Wood My wedding dress, with silk organza, was purchased in 1963 from a lovely store called Rusan’s in downtown Spokane, Washington.  I believe it was the second wedding dress I tried on, and I felt it was perfect for me.  My dear mother, who was with me, thought so too. I was the only one to wear my gown.  Our daughter (we also have three sons), married 19 years now, purchased her own wedding dress.  At that time, however, I thought I would replace the veil for my headpiece/tiara with a lovely new...

Five Ways to Balance Time With Other Couples (Including Ones You Don’t Love)

Maintaining Friendships With Other Couples One of the most interesting phenomenons occurs soon after you are married. As you and your spouse continue to want to spend time together (hopefully not a phenomenon), you notice yourselves having opinions of other couples and soon find that you must strategically plan how to spend time with them. After all, there are much higher odds that at least one member of the two couples doesn’t particularly like another person than all four equally enjoying each others’ company. It is also just as...

Bride’s Advice: Buy Dress Early | wedding dress story

A Wedding Dress Story by Erinn R. My now husband and I got engaged in September of 2012. Even though I knew we had over a year until our wedding on March 22, 2014, I couldn’t wait to start the search for my perfect dress.

I told myself I was ONLY LOOKING, because who buys their wedding dress a year and a half before the wedding? I had been warned about...
